The Nocona Lady Indians lost a tough one at Windthorst on Tuesday night.
The Lady Trojans won in straight sets against the Lady Indians, though the final two sets could have gone either way.
It was the third time the teams have met in the first month. Nocona first played Windthorst in the team’s first tournament at Burkburnett in pool play. The Lady Trojans won that exchange easily. Later during bracket play, the teams matched up again and Windthorst won again with little issue.
A week and half later and not in a tournament setting, the details were a bit different even if the overall result was the same story.
The first set went like the other four had gone. The Lady Trojans took a nice lead and would win comfortably 25-17.
The next two sets saw the Lady Indians compete better and grow. It came down to the wire in both sets, but unfortunately Windthorst was just able to come away with wins by the scores 25-23 in each set.
The Forestburg Lady Horns picked up a win on the road Tuesday night at Ector.
The Lady Horns won in straight sets in convincing fashion against the Lady Eagles.
Forestburg won with set scores 25-18, 25-21 and 25-11. Rachel Allen led the team with five service aces while Reagan Ladewig had a team high four kills.
The Gold-Burg Lady Bears won on the road at Benjamin on Tuesday night.
The Lady Bears won in four sets, with the third set being the only competitive one of the night from the Lady Mustangs.
Gold-Burg won the first two sets handily with scores 25-15 and 25-9. Feeling good about themselves, the Lady Bears relaxed heading out for the third set. That is when Benjamin played its best, catching Gold-Burg unaware.
It went down to the wire and even into extra points. Unfortunately, the Lady Mustangs pulled out the win 26-24 to extend the match and give them any hope.
Not wanting a repeat or to give Benjamin a chance to possibly make it to a fifth set, Coach Cheryl Cromleigh lit the fire back into her team heading out for the fourth set.
It was the same story as sets one and two as the Lady Bears won easily 25-15 to cap off the match.

The Nocona Indians lost their rematch against Muenster last week.
Much like the first game, the Hornets won 15-0 by run rule after four innings of play.
Muenster came out hot in the top of the first inning scoring seven runs before the Indians had even batted and they could never recover.
Wesley Murphey did draw a walk to lead off the game for Nocona, but that ended up being the only base runner for the Indians in the rest of the game.
Nocona actually held the Hornets to only one run in the second inning and no runs the fourth, but Muenster scored another seven runs in the third inning.

The Nocona Lady Indians lost a district game against Muenster on Friday night thanks to a rough sixth inning.
The Lady Hornets won 13-7 against the Lady Indians, with them pulling ahead late in the game after a back and forth in the first five innings.
Muenster got on the board first thanks to an error in the outfield 1-0.

The Lady Hornets tied it in the second inning 2-2, before taking back the lead in the third inning with three runs to go up 5-2.
Nocona came back in the bottom of the third with three runs of its own to tie the game at 5-5.
Tobie Cable hit an RBI triple followed by Crutsinger driving her in with a single. Denise DeLeon then grounded out with Crutsinger on third base, which allowed her to score to tie the game up.
The Lady Hornets broke the tie with two more runs scored in the fourth inning to make it 7-5.
Nocona could not respond and the score stayed the same following a scoreless fifth inning.
Down only two runs, Nocona had one of its defensive innings from hell it had been avoiding.
Two fielding errors added to three singles, a double and walk allowed Muenster to score six runs, almost doubling its run total and taking a 13-5 lead along with all of the momentum.
Nocona could not answer back until it was down to its last out in the bottom of the seventh inning. Crutsinger drove in a run with a single followed by Skye Kirby hitting a triple to drive in another before it was followed by the game’s final out.
The Lady Hornets won 13-7.
The Saint Jo Lady Panthers lost at Era on Saturday.
The Lady Hornets won 15-5 by run rule after five innings against the young Lady Panthers.
Saint Jo was hoping it could compete well against Era the team being 2A.
Unfortunately, the Lady Panthers fell behind 4-0 after the first inning as they had real trouble finding the strike zone.
Despite that, innings two and three was scoreless for both sides. The Lady Panthers did cut the lead in half in the top of the fourth inning as Mercedes Diaz doubled to drive in a run followed by Payzlie Cervantes grounding out to drive in another.
Era’s lead was down to 4-2, but unfortunately the Lady Hornets had a big inning in return. Saint Jo gave up nine runs in the bottom of the fourth inning, making its two-run deficit now 11 runs down with it being 13-2 entering the fifth inning.
Saint Jo needed to score at least two runs to avoid being run ruled and making the Lady Hornets hit. The Lady Panthers got that thanks to five straight walks with one out.
Following a strikeout, Cervantes then hit a single to drive in one more run cut the lead to 13-5.
Era needed to score two runs to end the game. A walk with the bases loaded and a steal of home plate did the trick as the Lady Hornets won 15-5.
